Having managed recording, elections and motor vehicle divisions during that time. Serving and helping our citizens is my passion and continually looking for ways to save our citizens time and money.
What sets you apart from the other candidate in this race?
My 25 years experience managing, supervising/coaching and operations in the clerk and recorder division is why I stand out from others interested and/or currently running for Douglas County clerk and recorder. I have national and state elections certifications, I participate in state legislative and technical committees to help all Colorado citizens. My network of partners continues to grow in all areas of clerk and recorder statewide.
What is your approach on running the clerk and recorder's office?
The clerk and recorder role specifically works closely with the chief deputy and deputies of each division to ensure compliance with Colorado revised statutes and rules. This role is also very active in collaborating to change both laws and rules where it makes sense and serves citizens. This also requires working closely with Douglas County elected officials and directors to make sure we understand the needs and ensure all are working together to accomplish our goals.
How can the clerk's office improve its perception to voters who feel they can't trust the current system?
This will require us to have more voter education in a variety of media and in person. A large number of our citizens are unaware of the checks and balances we currently have in place. I would like to see the individuals that have questions to become election workers and become informed as well.
Do you believe the 2020 presidential election was stolen?
I do not believe that there were any issues in Douglas County.
In what ways can the operations of the clerk's office be improved upon?
I would ask the citizens where they feel the clerk's office can be improved. We have implemented a number of changes that help our citizens by making appointments when there is a need to come into the office; we have added motor vehicle renewal kiosks in six King Sooper locations so citizens can renew their license plates while running errands; the state has online services and we continue to work with the state to enhance services.
What is the biggest challenge facing the clerk's office and how will you address it?
We have experienced difficulty recruiting staff, like other businesses. We are working to examine how we can enhance our recruiting efforts. We continue to have citizens that are vocal about elections integrity. We will continue to address these concerns as they arise, pointing citizens to trusted information, and communicating opportunities for their involvement during proposed rulemaking and legislation.
